things we are that we need in this country. i am originally from europe. i am an immigrant who was a u.s. citizen. in europe, people talk about politics and are educated about in the family. here, people are apathetic about politics. they take everything for granted because they do not realize that problems could result of the don't pay attention. whether there should be 8 for the line for people who are undecided, they are not undecided, they don't know what is going on. i saw a news item right after the presidential debate on c- span, they were doing a focus group on the undecideds. it turns out that one of the women in the focus group was an actress who was paid to be in the focus group. it just shows the extent to which people who are running once did do people into going for -- want to do people into going for what they what. -- want to dupe people into going for what they want. host: here is a comment on twitter -- here is another bad from crossroads from the karl rove group. >> obama promised -- if your family is making $250,000 per year, my plan will not raise your taxes. >> on

saudi arabia, qatar, other gulf countries. you saw in today's paper the u.s. has the policy essentially of not arming the rebels directly, but allowing or possibly assisting in indirectly arming the rebels through countries like these gulf countries, saudi arabia and qatar. and the problem you have is many private citizens from these countries, in fact, don't espouse democratic values, per se. but support more militant islamic groups. >> clarissa, let me ask you about that "new york times" piece this morning that says a lot of these arms being supplied by saudi arabia and qatar are going into the hands of these hard line islamic jihadists and not these more secular opposition groups. is this a blow to u.s. strategy there? >> i think it absolutely is. because there's a very real sense that the u.s. has lost an opportunity here by taking such a hands-off approach to the syrian conflict. they've really lost the opportunity to influence the -- what's happening on the ground and to ensure that groups and opposition members who do espouse more democratic values have any real success or power

picture is developing from the state department about what really happened when gunmen stormed the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya and killed four americans including the u.s. ambassador there. the obama administration initially claimed the attacks stemmed from a protest over an anti-islam film produced in the united states. and posted to youtube. but officials at the state department say that was never their conclusion adding there was no protest at all. in fact, diplomats first realized they were under at being a when they heard exploegs and saw armed men entering their compound. a quick response team was dispatched with 60 libyan militia men to try to stop the assault, but they were too late. by then the attackers already had set fire to the building where ambassador chris stevens was hiding. that account directly conflicts the description of the attack provided on "meet the press" by u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice. this was on september 16th, five days after the attack. >> putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is
